This rifle is probably one of the scarcest rifles we have seen in years. Not only have we not seen one of these rifles in over 20 years but this particular configuration was manufactured in a limited run of only 175 rifles. These rifles were only available via special order to members of the Sako Collectors Association. Manufactured in 1982 this was the last time that the Finnwolf was available on the US market.
Arguably one of the finest built lever-actions of the 20th century the Sako Finnwolf was designed to be a direct competitor to Winchester's Model 88 during the 1960's and 1970's. Due to being produced in very small quantities and costing more than the Winchester Model 88 at the time of it's introduction the Finnwolf's existence is often over-shadowed. Chambered in either .308 Win. or .243 Win the Finnwolf was the ideal brush gun for most deer hunters of North America. The rotating breech bolt combined the accuracy of a bolt-action with the speed of a lever-action. The action of these rifles is known for being exceptionally smooth and precisely fit, resulting is a very pleasant operation of the rifle
This rifle is AS NEW UNFIRED with the original box, all the paperwork, special option Lyman diopter rear sight, ramped & hooded front sight and the original shipping carton! This is as about as complete as it comes for a gun of this age.The rifle has never been fired, and it's possible the action has not been worked outside of the factory as well. It is in all of 99% condition with only the slightest marks here and there on the wood.The one screw of the sight is also slightly marred. We have done our best to show this rifle for exactly what it is and we encourage you to look over all photos shown.
This is an exceedingly rare opportunity to own a rifle that many of us will quite likely never see another one of in our lifetimes!
